Understanding Trusts

A trust is a tool to protect your assets and help achieve your financial goals. A trustee executes your financial plan by controlling the flow of funds to beneficiaries. A trust can allow a person to avoid probate and minimize taxation. Our attorneys can help you determine what kind of trust best fits your situation and create a comprehensive estate plan.

Mike is an experienced attorney who creates many kinds of trusts, including but not limited to:

  • Charitable retained annuity trusts
  • Qualified personal residence trusts (QRPT)
  • Family limited partnerships (FLPs)
  • Disclaimer and credit shelter trusts
  • Revocable and irrevocable life insurance

Safeguard The Rights Of Special Needs Children And Adults

A guardianship is a legal document that allows another person to make life decisions for an individual who lacks the capacity to care for themselves. Our attorneys can prepare a guardianship application in order to protect your loved one and ensure they receive proper care. You may want to apply for a guardianship if your loved one has health issues or mental or cognitive disabilities.

A special needs trust is another tool that allows you to provide financial support to a disabled or mentally ill beneficiary. These trusts also let you give support to a person with special needs allowing them to maintain their government benefits. We can work with you to create a special needs trust that gives your disabled loved one the resources they need to maintain their lifestyle.
